Music Hall CDs


Ernie Mayne
Fried Fruit Fritters (CDR25)

Ernie Mayne was a giant of the Music Hall - 20 stone in weight to be exact. His style was similarly loud and exuberant. Under the tag "The Simple One", Ernie's down-to-earth songs are of simple pleasures, mainly connected with food and drink. The song "What d'ye think of that" was later used as the basis for Lonnie Donegan's famous skiffle number "My Old Man's a Dustman".

Ernie Mayne was the first Music Hall Artist to broadcast on the Radio when he performed "Wireless on the Brain" on 11 October 1922

Ernie Mayne's most famous song "You can't get many pimples, on a pound of pickled pork" leads this 25 track CD.

Track Listing

You can't get many pimples
on a pound of pickled pork
Goosey Goosey Gander
Ten little fingers
Tale of my husband's shirt
My meatless day
Lloyd George's Beer
Farmyard on the brain
Nobody loves a fat man
Let's go round and have a taster
Fried fruit fritters
We used to gather at the old Dun Cow
Thtop your thtuttering Thammy
Where do the flies go in the Wintertime?
Eggs and bacon
Tarzan of the apes
I like a'not water bottle in bed
The roast beef of old England
Hello! Old what's-a- name
What d'yer think of that?
Our little garden Sub-bub
Wireless on the brain
We don't keep fish, only kippers
A n'egg and some n'ham and a n'onion
I've never wronged an onion.
